Quotes of the Day: MySpace Edition

1. Jeremy Jackson, aka Hobbie from Baywatch: "I'm actually shy. There are women I wouldn't go up to at a club. But I'll e-mail them on MySpace. For some reason you get on there and all the barriers come down. Girls will say things they'd never say to you in public. And there is the mystery element—the intangible thing. 'Is he real?' It makes them want you more."

2. "'What about that?,' DeWolfe asks, pointing to a shot of a woman, naked from the waist up, pretending to stick some kind of giant novelty syringe into her breast. 'No, see, she's covering 'em up,' the programmer [whose job is to monitor inappropriate photos] says, gesturing to where her nipples are barely obscured by a forearm."
